Saturday 8 October

Good morning all from a wet, grey and dismal Stornoway.

It is 7 years ago today that I started to write a blog, called Northern Trip. This link will take you to that first entry.  Northern Trip was hosted on AOL, which pulled its blogging service three years ago this month. A lot of bloggers stopped blogging at that time, and others moved to Blogger or other providers. Facebook has allowed us to re-establish contact, fortunately.

I may put up another entry later today, but will close this post with some of the pictures I took on 8 October 2004.

  2. Hi Guido,

    I lost heart when AOL took J'land. I am glad that you are still blogging about the Hebrides. Great photos. Keep up the good work.
